Make Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe
3-1/2 cups water
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (one whole one,
or two halves)
1 16-oz. can diced tomatoes (you can use Italian or
Mexican style, if you like)
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 4-oz. can diced green chilies
1 medium onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced (I use more, but I’m a garlic freak)
1 tbs. cumin
1/2 a bunch of cilantro, chopped
sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
tortilla chips (baked are fine for this)

Boil the chicken breast in the 3-1/2 cups of water for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove chicken to cool, saving the broth. Saute the onion in a little olive oil; once the onion begins to soften, add the garlic and the cumin. Saute a couple of minutes, then add all of it to the chicken broth. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chilies and cilantro to the broth. Simmer 10-20 minutes. Dice chicken, or shred it with two forks, and add to the broth. (*Note: sometimes I don’t have as much liquid at this point as I would like, so I have added canned chicken broth with very good results.) Simmer for another 10-20 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Serve with tortilla chips. (Soup may be served over the tortilla chips, if desired.) Makes 4-6 servings, depending on appetites.

Thummies Fingerprint Pictures

Ink Pad or Tempera Pain
Paper
Fine point felt tip marking pen
Thummies are so easy to do, and you can continually come up with more ideas for them.  Once you start, it’s hard to stop!

If using an ink pad, simply press your thumb into the inked pad, and then press it onto paper.  Add details and background to the print to create an animal, person or whatever strikes your fancy.  If you are using tempera paint, pour a small amount into a jar lid or onto a styrofoam plate.  You may need to gently wipe some off your fingertip before printing.

Thummies make great decorations for greeting cards, stationary and gift tags.  They are a great way to illustrate a story or an experience.  Thummies enjoy each other’s company, and the more of them you put into a picture, the more fun it becomes.
